The holiday season is the perfect time to curl up on your couch with a cup of hot chocolate, and a festive Christmas movie. Turn on best Christmas episodes of shows on this list for fulfilling moments.
Grey’s Anatomy, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer”
Opening list of best Christmas episodes, we have a medical drama. Yep, even your favorite medical drama knows how to get into the Christmas spirit. Rewind all the way back to season 2 for a show that’s not really about the holidays … but is holiday-adjacent, nonetheless.
The Office, “Christmas Party”
Who could ever forget the infamous season 2 gift exchange-turned-Yankee Swap? The Office’s inaugural Christmas episode was one we’ll always remember fondly (and watch over and over and over again).
Friends, “The One With The Holiday Armadillo”
Friends corners the market on Thanksgiving episodes, but that’s not to say its Christmas offerings are shabby in comparison. This season seven entry explores Ross’ desire for his son to have a rounded education of the holiday season. As the Gellers are Jewish and Ben knows nothing of his heritage Ross masterminds a cunning plan to make Hanukkah appealing to his son… by inventing Santa’s Tex-Mex pal, the holiday armadillo.
Chuck, “Chuck Versus Santa Claus”
Chuck’s weekly source of conflict takes a double-pronged approach for his Christmas extravaganza. His everyday ruse as an employee of Buy More brings the big guns, literally. After a high-speed pursuit, a disgruntled man crashes his car through the front windows and holds the store hostage.
Doctor Who, “A Christmas Carol”
Accept no substitute when it comes to the Doctor. A Christmas Carol is arguably the top of best Christmas TV show episodes – depending on your preference – reinventing the classic Dickensian yarn for legions of Whovians.
Full House, “A Very Tanner Christmas”
Looking for best Christmas episodes on Netflix, so this is what you finding. Soak up all the festive Tanner family goodness from this throwback episode before queueing up “Nutcrackers” (another winning Christmas episode from Fuller House season 2) on Netflix.
Glee, “A Very Glee Christmas”
Finally, ending of best Christmas episodes of shows will be a musical show. The first Glee Christmas episode produced some of the show’s best holiday tracks, from Lea Michele’s take on “Merry Christmas, Darling” to Darren Criss and Chris Colfer’s beloved performance of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
